mozambique and killing the rhinos which effectively are carrying the valuable asset on earth in their nose. rhino horn is worth 100,000 kilograms up to -- sorry, dollars per kilogram. fueled by demand from asia where they believe it has medicinal benefits. i think that is a very important message to get across. what they are doing to try to locate the rhinos and we went along with them on the program. they dart them from a helicopter and the rhino is effectively put to sleep, immobilized and they blind fold it to calm it down. they take dna samples and micro chip the horn. then give it a boost to get back on its feet with the help of the team. it is incredible to watch them do it. load it on a trailer and relocate it safer.
